Though it may be wet and windy outside with winter drawing nearer, it doesn't mean we can't wear stylish outfits in the colder months. 

Marks and Spencer has dropped a selection of new-in garments to see you through the season, and there is one in particular we're lusting after - and intending to wear all day every day. 

Introducing the Floral Midi Waisted Dress, which comes in two autumnal floral prints; a classic navy print, and a bolder floral print on a black background.

Why we rate it: 

The Floral Midi Waisted Dress features a floaty tiered skirt which falls to midi length. 

It features a slight puff shoulder detail, as well a tie belt, which cinches in at the waist for a flattering feminine silhouette.

We love how M&S has paid extra attention to detail with the fill detailing on the front bodice, as well as the romantic cuffs. 

It also can be styled numerous ways this season, including layering an item of knitwear over the top, from a cosy jumper to a knitted tank

The Floral Midi Waisted Dress is available in petite and regular versions, both of which are available in UK dress sizes 6 to 24, and retails for £39.50.
